Looks great on my desk at work, and takes up less desk space. I am using Kleenex box MJT010 (UPC 3600021606).

Downloaded and went to print and the bottom piece was scheduled for 90+ hours at 20% infill. Moved it down to 10% infill and it went down to 60+ hours. Just for the bottom! I'll save it for later if I'm not planning on using my printer for a week lol.

It's definitely a large piece. For me at 5% infill, the bottom, middle, and top pieces took 16, 11, and 8 hours respectively and consumed around half a spool of filament.

So I should need ~0.5kg of filament?

With several partial prints (failures), I finished a 1kg spool printing versions of this. It depends of course on your slicer settings, but for 0.2mm layers with 2 perimeters (shells), 5% infill and support enabled, my slicer estimates 525g of filament needed for all three parts.

Unfortunately, I do not have the finished print to weigh for a more exact value.

Love the Idea!
for which size tissue-box did you design it?

The thing that I remixed was not digitally designed but 3D scanned from a physical product. It seems to fit a medium "Kleenex-type" box, though it took some work to get the box correctly seated.

would have the overall dimension of the kleenex box? just to get an idea. Thx

I was wondering the same thing. Found this, it seems they are fairly standardized: http://www.tissue-box-covers.com/wood-tissue-box-cover/tissue-cover-sizes-dimension-type-styles-and-etc.

Looks like a Medium Kleenex-type is 4 3/4" x 9 1/2"x 4 1/4". The only difference in the three sizes is the height, so I think it would just stick out the back a bit more if you get the larger one. I'll report back when I finish my print.

Thank you for the feedback. I'll try to print it soon
